Toronto is the capital city of the Ontario province and it’s also the biggest city in Canada. It is located on the coast of Lake Ontario and it has population of over 2,5 million people. Citizens of Toronto call themselves torontonians (English) or torontois (French). The origin of the name “Toronto” comes from the Iroquoian word tkaronto, which means “place where trees stand in the water”.
Toronto is one of the most multicultural cities of the world and many people refer to it as “The New York City of Canada”. And they are not far from the truth. Downtown area is always crowded, and except numerous people, it is filled with breathtaking skyscrapers. Those glass giants are forcing you to raise your head up and stare in awe. On the street level, Toronto is offering a lot of restaurants, bars, shopping experiences and more. Aside from that concrete jungle, there are a lot of smaller green areas where you can take a breath and enjoy your coffee or a snack. And if you’re looking for recreational activities, you can find many parks and open spaces with all the amenities.
